For many new home buyers, they want to see more than just their neighbor’s fence when they walk outside, or to wake up to a view that isn’t the street outside. Lakefront living comes with gorgeous scenery, a natural landscape that can’t be beat, and the peaceful seclusion that many people seek. Let’s take a look at what makes Hidden Lake by Ange Signature Homes the ideal place for a Triangle homeowner to live.The AtmosphereLakeside at Hidden LakeIf you look beyond the scenic views and the lovely landscaping (although it’s definitely hard to forget that!), the atmosphere of living on a lake is much different than living in or near the city or in a typical neighborhood. The privacy that comes with living around the 80-acre Hidden Lake is priceless – there’s no one living right on top of you, and the ability to have peace and quiet all of the time creates a serene ambiance. The lake itself provides many amenities, and a creates a social environment of its own. Neighbors and friends can gather to go swimming, boating, kayaking or fishing, and spend time just soaking in the sun and having quality time. There’s also a 7-acre amenity site, which includes a community lake house with lakeside veranda, covered outdoor pavilion with grill and fireplace, and a boat house and fishing pier. You can take a stroll on the nearly 3 miles of walking and nature trails, or enjoy a short drive to Wake Forest or Raleigh. It’s like living in your very own getaway vacation – you have the water, the fresh air, peacefulness – and you get to come home to it every day.The HomesCustom built home at Hidden LakeThe homes are custom built by renowned home builder Ange Signature Homes, who builds each home to fit the home buyer’s lifestyle and needs.

Hidden Lake just is 8 miles away from Wake Forest, which is one of the fastest growing areas in the Triangle. They’ve continued their emergence as a major player in the phenomenal growth and activity witnessed throughout the Triangle; with outstanding restaurants and specialty shops. Mindful of its rich heritage, the downtown area is also an officially registered historic district, offering residents a rich cultural experience.
